Media centre lecture

The MPhil in Film and Screen Studies is an interdisciplinary degree that offers a firm grounding in the theoretical discourses that shape the academic study of the moving image, but in an expansive context that privileges freedom and originality of inquiry. In the Michaelmas (autumn) term students follow a two-part core course that offers a series of rigorous and innovative encounters with major theoretical and methodological debates. In the Lent (spring) term students take two optional modules. Across these terms students participate in eight research seminars offered by visiting scholars. In the Easter (summer) term students work closely with supervisors to produce their theses. During this term students also enjoy the opportunity to present their research in progress in a professional context. 

Graduates of the MPhil frequently proceed to doctoral study, but also go on to work in the film and media industries, and numerous other fields.
